Foley will be presenting the 2011 Employment Law Update, a program that will review the most notable employment law developments from 2010/2011, and will outline things to come. The opening session will provide a comprehensive summary overview of the developments that employment law counsel and HR executives need to understand.
  • Employment Law Year in Review
    Bennett (Buzz) Epstein
    and Caroline Hogan
    This session will provide an overview of the important case law and statutory developments from 2010 and 2011. We also will try to pull these pieces together to get a clearer view of the big picture of employment law.
  • The New OSHA — Where Enforcement Is Primary, Are You Ready?
    Dan Kaplan
    and Krista Sterken
    This session will cover OSHA's new, more aggressive approach to enforcement, which includes increased citations and penalty assessments. Our speakers will identify the "most cited" regulations that you should be aware of, as well as national emphasis programs that are currently getting attention. Finally, you will learn "best practices" and tips for defending against a citation should OSHA knock on your door.
  • ATT Mobility v. Concepcion: The End of Employment Class Actions?
    Mike Lueder and Chris Ward
    Earlier this year, the United States Supreme Court issued a landmark decision that could impact employment class action litigation for years to come. This session will address whether your company should adopt an arbitration policy and gives pointers on how to make it stick if you do.
  • Whistleblower Rights Are on the Rise, Retaliation Claims Are Too
    Paul Monsees
    and David Froiland
    Handling employee complaints well — and promptly — is more important than ever. This presentation focuses on whistleblower pitfalls faced by employers, and ways to reduce the company's exposure.
  • Facebook, Twitter, and Email, Oh My!
    Mark Neuberger
    and Cherice Hopkins
    The use of social media in the workplace as both a business tool and social outlet for employees is creating a host of new legal challenges. Unfortunately, the law lags the use of the technology and increasingly employers are faced with new and novel "What do I do now?" situations. This session will provide practical insight and guidance for companies facing a host of novel and evolving business challenges triggered by social media.
